What effect on braking does abs trouble cause

Hello Sharla,
Abs problems will only show up when the tires are slipping when the brakes are applied such as on ice or rainwater on the road and will often sound like a crunching sound inside the vehicle as the abs system pulse the braking system. There is no other symptoms when the tires are not slipping. If your vehicle is not stopping otherwise then you will need to have the brakes serviced, or have new tires installed if there is not much treads left on the tires!

Good Luck!

How do I get ABS and Bas light of my dash board?

The computer needs to be reset with a scanner from a auto tech. Do you know if any of the abs sensors were damaged or disturbed? If all OK there, just clear codes. You should be OK. Good Luck Fran M

The break, abs ,and tire pressure lite is on, what is it!

Tire pressure monitoring system.
- Inflate all the Tire pressures to the recommended pressure.
- Park the vehicle on a level ground.
- Under the dash on steering side there is a Tire pressure reset button.
- Switch ON the ignition (do not start engine) .
- Hold the RESET button for 3 seconds and the TPMS light will go out.
If the problem persist, scan the system.
Pull up the ABS error codes with or without diagnostic scanner and post them here.

Abs dash light flashing

The only way the tires could cause the light to come on is if the back tires were bigger than the front. The ABS system counts the number of times each tire makes a revolution and compares that with the other wheels.
You would need to have the computer scanned for trouble codes, which would require a scanner not a simple code reader.

Abs and traction control off lights on after new tires installed on buick lesabre 2003

if you have a code reader available,reset trouble codes,if that doesn't work you probably need to have it checked out.they may have dis lodged a sensor when they changed the tires.unless you radically changed tire size it shouldn't be the tires

How do i reset the ABS warning light and the rear light indicators on the dash?

usually when your front wheel bearing is wrecked the abs will go off.

cant reset the abs light till you change the bearing and get a new sensor..... if the bearing is the problem.

jack the front end up and see if you can wiggle the tire and up and down and see if it seems to wiggle in the hub. if the tire wiggles in the hub (not the suspension, in the hub) your bearing is worn out and the sensor has gone off. the new sensor comes with the new bearing.

good luck and let me know if i helped

Same ABS problem with my 2006 Pacifica

Go to a diffrent mechanic! There is only one light for your ABS and thats on your dash. If the light came on after the brakes were installed, I would suspect that your mechanic didn't open the bleeder screw on the calipers before depressing the piston. This would force fluid back to the ABS acumulator, setting off the light.

Service Brake system flashed three seperate times over 24 hours

2 suggestions:

(1) I would suggest someone scan the ABS system for codes. I Have an '03 silverado 2500HD Crew cab, and it needs an EBCM (Electronic Brake Control Module) "ABS module". "Service Brake System" message on dash, ABS and Brake warning lamps lit as well. May be the R/F ABS wheel speed sensor, but what you described happen, shouldn't have caused damage to it.
(2) If the aftermarket rim and tire combo are larger than stock (larger overall diameter), then this may affect the way your PCM functions. You can reprogram the PCM to recognize larger diameter running gear so trans shift points and the speedometer and such can function properly.
I hope this helps.

Antil Lock Brake and ETS dash lights stay on.

The brake tech may have done something wrong or damaged a wheel sensor, take it back, if the problem started after the work on the brakes it is a safe bet they did something to cause the problem, one note as long as those warning lights are on the ABS and traction assist are disabled, no problem in dry weather, winter another thing.
